Permanent collection on history of El Paso was well-presented but the place is small and can easily be zipped through. To read everything would take an hour max. But it is free.
Their collection was not very big and they really did not have much information on the history of El Paso or the surrounding areas. It wasn't a large museum and it seemed they didn't even have enough to fill the room they did have. I felt that there could have been much more information and artifacts about this very historical...

This museum is so much more than a dusty collection of books you can't... More
This museum is one of my favorites when I'm in El Paso. I love history and this museum satisfies my appetite.
The El Paso Museum scene really needs some work, and this is a classic example of that. We went today (Tuesday), and there were few people around. This isn't unusual, as I've drove by numerous times and the place never seemed very busy. From the outside the place looks top of the line as the city obviously spent a lot... More
